Best Alkaline Foods Servings

My best alkaline foods servings list shows the top 100 most alkaline foods by serving size.

In my previous Most Alkaline Key Foods List, I looked at the best popular foods. That information is derived from the list of key foods prepared by USDA. Unfortunately, we know that popular foods are not necessarily healthy, so I have widened the scope.

My new list of best alkaline foods shows the top 100 alkaline foods in the entire USDA foods list. The biggest drawback of that list is high levels of duplication. I’ve tried to reduce this by omitting:

  • Obvious duplicates where foods are listed with and without salt.
  • Baby foods
  • Highly processed foods

Salt does not affect PRAL estimates. So, I’ve omitted those duplicates. Processed foods are difficult to omit completely. I’ve tried to keep packaged foods that are not overtly unhealthy. However, some may have slipped through, so tell me if you see any unhealthy foods, and I will remove them.

By extending the scope, I hope this list tempts you to try alkaline foods that you have not considered in the past. I will produce a similar list with foods presented by 100 calorie serving size, if there is sufficient interest. Also tell me if you want more lists of alkaline foods. I’ve listed the top 100 alkaline foods here. There are around 1000 foods in the USDA database that might improve your pH balance.
